And it was a brutal brutal experience.
I was still throwing garbage and other items out (and taking them to storage) up until the time I was supposed to be out.
It was a shame — there was furniture that I could not sell or give away — it wound up being carted away by theDPW (and did I get a dirty look from them when they showed up). I did manage to give away the sofa and loveseat; some guy and his wife came and took it away in a truck.
For now I am in a hotel because I could not find an apartment that will accept a dog! This is 2015 and this kind of entality still exists. There is the next dog friendly town about 3 miles from here but the rents are much too high for me.
I have to chase Bro in court for the damages; I am awaiting his address (the law firm that did the closing has his address) so I can get the proceedings underway.
The final tally for back property taxes was ab out $9200.
if I had to do it all over again: Sell this house outright — and hired another realtor. The one I had wasn’t all thqat great — she was the one who told me to “Sell everything you have and b e ready to move out after Labor Day” and suggested I give away my dog, to get rooms faster.
This was a suck azz and rotten experience and I felt like I got treated like a common criminal. (Yeah, this from the person who sent me the wrong info in the email and did not proofread it before she hit send. Lots to b e desired. Not quality help)
Bro was 90 minutes late for the closing — he called and told them he was delayed somewhere. 3pm is 3pm and you are to BE THERE.
My goal right now is to find a permanent place to live. What I have seen so far are dumps and the landlord wants a fortune for these crappy rooms. I may have to look into the shore area or something further out.
That damage money was supposed to be held in escrow. that did not happen in the end and I am still pretty pissed. Then again , I am wondering if the escrow withhold would have worked in my favor abnd accomplished what I wanted “faster.”
(and I think this atty is po’d that I did not hire him for my next endeavor. Another long story and I did not get what I paid for this go round)
